Brazos Bride: Men of Stone Mountain Texas by Caroline Clemmons

Today we are spotlighting one of Caroline's books.  I really enjoy this book.  It has scrappy women, honorable men, and a villain you never see coming.  I remember when she was writing this series.  I ended up doing a lot of geological research to find just the right place for the books to take place.

Brazos Bride: Men of Stone Mountain Texas
 (A Stone Mountain Texas Book 1)
By Caroline Clemmons

New cover, Mildly sensual, Some profanity, historical, 65,000 words. Hope Montoya knows someone is poisoning her, but who? She suspects her mother was also poisoned and knows her father was murdered. Who wants her family eliminated? She vows to fight! She realizes she won’t last the eight months until she turns twenty-five and her uncle no longer controls her or her estate. Never will she be dominated by a man as she was by her father, as she has seen her mother and grandmothers dominated. If she marries, she gains control now, but only if she weds a man she can trust. Only one man meets her requirements. Can she trust him to protect her and capture the killer...but then to leave?

Micah Stone has been in love with Hope since the first time he saw her. But he was accused of her father’s murder and surely would have hung if not for his two brothers’ aid. Most in the community still believe him guilty. But the drought has him too worried about water for his dying cattle to care about his neighbors’ opinions. When Hope proposes a paper marriage in exchange for land on the Brazos River and much needed cash, her offer rubs his pride raw. His name may be Stone, but he’s not made of it. He can’t refuse her for long, and so their adventure begins.

This book is the first in the Stone Mountain, Texas series.  There are four books in the series currently.  Enjoy them all.
